BMW X3 xDrive30i 2018 review: snapshot

EXPERT RATING
8.5
The xDrive30i is the only (for now) petrol variant on offer in the X3 family, and is sandwiched between the entry-level xDrive20d and the more expensive xDrive30d.

The xDrive30i is the only (for now) petrol variant on offer in the X3 family, and is sandwiched between the entry-level xDrive20d and the more expensive xDrive30d.

Your $75,900 investment builds on the roof rails, LED headlights, colour head-up display, three-zone climate and wireless phone-charging pad that arrive as standard on the entry-level cars, but adds bigger 20-inch alloys, full leather seats, a 10.25-inch touchscreen running the latest iDrive system, and another 12-inch digital display that replaces the traditional gauges in the driver's binnacle.

The petrol-powered xDrive30i makes use of a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder engine producing 185kW and 350Nm, which is paired with an eight-speed "sport" automatic. It sends its power to all four wheels, and will knock off the sprint to 100km/h in 6.3sec.

You'll also now find BMW's Driving Assistant Plus, which includes Active Cruise Control with AEB, cross-traffic warning and steering and lane assistants. All of which forms part of the brand's autonomous package (the same that appears on the 5 series). The system will allow you - in the right conditions - to take your hands off the wheel for spells of 40 seconds.
